Who would you like to see make a cameo and get eaten in Washington, D.C.? Do you think Alexandria, Virginia will play a part in the movie? Discuss below!

Via Mashable

The suited sharks of Washington D.C. are going to meet real sharks in the next installment of Syfy’s Sharknado franchise.

The network announced on Monday that Sharknado 3 will see the finned flying terrors devour the entire Eastern seaboard, starting with a stop in Washington D.C. before heading down for some sun in Orlando, Florida.

“No seaboard city below our nation’s capital is safe,” teases the movie’s official website.

Sharknado 3 will be on TV in summer 2015.
